Wild Cats /

The Leopard (Panthera pardus) is the smallest of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. They also have the largest distribution of any wild cat. It is similar in appearance to the Jaguar, but is smaller and more slightly built. Its fur is marked with rosettes spots similar to those of the jaguar, but they do not usually have central spots as the jaguars do. Both leopards and jaguars that are melanistic (completely black or very dark) are known as black panthers. Leopards are known for their ability in climbing, and have been observed resting on tree branches during the day, dragging their kills up trees and hanging them there, and descending from trees headfirst.

The nine subspecies recognised are: African leopard. Indian leopard. Javan leopard. Arabian leopard. Amur leopard. and the Caucasian leopard
